Toddlers and Teats-Ancient Egyptians breast fed their children typically for 3 years. Infant mortality was high & food borne illnesses common, so prolonged breast feeding was a means of protection. Also meant a means of birth control by suppressing ovulation so mother could recover and father could rebuild resources between births.
Parisian Carrots (55 days)...A great little round carrot that is a nineteenth-century French heirloom. It "excels in clay or rocky soil where other carrots have problems developing properly". They say it works great for containers. Would be so fun for the kids to pick!
